including some along the garden state parkway. yesterday president obama joined governor chris christie on the ground in atlantic city for an up-close look at the destruction where the storm came ashore. they also saw the damage by air. boarding the president's marine one helicopter for aerial views of the hardest-ity communities. the governor thanked the president for pledging quick federal relief to the region. it's something president obama insists will not be delayed. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and i've instituted a 15-minute rule essentially on my team, you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes. whether it's the mayors, the governors, county officials. if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and inte
he says i've got 15-minute role and chris christie over his shoulder nodding and chuckling, yeah, he's going to kick some rear end, you know, that is -- >> that's the british way. christie would have other choices. continue on, my friend. >> the british word -- >> thank you. but you've also got an implicit contrast, right? when -- when the president has to go out and remind people about the bush era, it becomes repetitive. it dulls the ears. here he doesn't have to mention bush. it's in everyone's head. katrina is recalled with the im. talk about fema, people think about the bush legacy. and so, he doesn't have make those contrastic splits, never mind about mitt romney, that helps him because he's doing stuff and it's all out there without the effort. >> you get the unearned assist from michael brown coming out. >> we'll talk about brownie. >> you couldn't ask for that. you couldn't make that bet. >> but there's karen welcome. hi. >> welcome to the show. i want to say, it's not just the presidential thing. it's also -- there's incredibly moving -- let's not forget the human toll this

, republican governor chris christie. just six days out from the election. interesting for many reasons and mostly because chris christie is a top romney surrogate and highly critical of the president in the past but since the storm lavished praise on the president's handling of the storm's wrath. before heading to the jersey shore, the president's made an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. this is the president meeting with several administration and cabinet persons there. we're told he addressed everyone around the table thanking them for the work and warning that the country's not out of the woods yet. joining us now nbc news political director chuck todd on the phone and ron allen live in point please sant beach, new jersey. todd, i'll start with you. we have chris christie with president obama and others say what else was supposed to happen here? i mean, these men may be from different sides of aisle but we know they're still without power and lost their homes and the other issue still facing the region. >> that's right. we are here in atlantic city. he is up in the chopper wit
visual endorsement of chris christie. chris christie is obviously not endorsing barack obama in any explicit way, but he said a lot of kind things about the president in the last 48 hours. you have a bunch of centrist kind of pseudo republicans, who knows where they are politically, but the cumulative effect i think is powerful. >> is there obama momentum right now, chuck? you score these pretty straight right down the middle. >> it's funny. i call it -- there's sort of the campaign insider's zeitgeist, if you will, and there's this assumption whether you heard haley barbour say it publicly, i talked to strategists on both sides, on the republican side worry about it privately and the democratic side hopeful for it. they think there's some sort of bounce for the president on sandy. nobody can point to any metric yet to prove this, but when you think about where things were a week ago, a week ago there was this assumption that, boy, all the intangibles here at the end were going to -- >> let me -- >> -- to romney. now it feels there's intangibles that may favor the president. >> i ge
what's happening there. this is the podium but moments later chris christie will be briefing his state. chris christie holding a press conference here that we'll bring you live here on cnn. a lot of people weren't expecting a storm this late in the season, and now the rush is on to get supplies. some storms already running low. people looking for bottled water, you are finding empty shelves there. look at that boat. trying to get them out and get them safe. despite mandatory evacuations in areas of new jersey, delaware, some people are bound to stay in their homes as they always do. and we know the answer to that, that's a bad idea, right? with me now, general russell honory, you commanded the military in new orleans as a general there, should people prepare differently for this storm than they do, because there are different elements with this, is there a different preparation for this storm? >> we have gone into this storm for the last few years since katrina to encourage people to have a three day's supply of food and water on hand for an event just like this. >> because usually whe
. staten island now stands at 12 out of a growing death toll of about 60 americans. chris christie was with president obama today, touring some of the communities in ruin along the shoreline. both politicians and leaders going out of their way to emphasize that day three of this natural disaster is still no time for partisan politics. >> i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together, surveying the coastline. we were on marine one together, and we had an opportunity to discuss it it at length. go to the shelter, have him see people's concerns. we have lots of challenges. challenges now to get back to normalcy. so we need to get power restored as quickly as possible. make sure people have clean drinks water. hospitals are taken care of, and that we get kids back to school. i'm pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately to help give us those things while we're in the car riding together. he worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend, it's been a great working relati
a fellow local, and that's chris christie, a governor who if you do what i do and still take your family to the boardwalk on weekends and seaside, point pleasant, it's a very good chance you'll see the governor of your state with his family as his parents took them there, because it's special to us, and he was saying he can't speak for all the privately owned places like this, a lot of the jersey shore, a lot of the boardwalks are a private concern. but boy, he wants to come back. this is part of the beating heart, the economic engine of the state of new jersey on down through delaware, maryland, on up through new york and new england. it's hard to imagine the east coast without a beach. the east coast without the jersey shore. >> brian, you're absolutely right. thank you, great reporting. don't forget, you can see him tonight. >>> is there any way power companies can keep their six million customers living in the dark satisfied with their service? president obama spoke to our next guest yesterday from the situation room about how to eliminate any bureaucratic roadblocks that delay the p
's wicked snap. >> he is wicked snap. we'll also be talking about what chris christie thinks of president obama's and his reaction to hurricane sandy. >> but we want to say good morning to jacki schechner who is sitting in steph's seat. >> a good day to get rid of her. [ laughter ] >> president obama is declaring major disasters today in new jersey and new york, he has also declared emergency conditions in both virginia and west virginia. sandy is now called a post tropical cyclone. firefighters are also having to go in and use a boat to rescue dozens of people. about 6 million people are without power including a large section of manhattan. we don't think about these little things -- >> elevateorelevators. >> exactly. west virginia pummelled by snow which we'll talk more about. also seeing snowfall in pennsylvania, virginia and north carolina. now mitt romney is back pedalling saying he could not get rid of fema which is a direct contradiction to what he said during the primary debates. more than 15 hurricane sandy staff for fema are positioned along the east coast. th
chris christie who toured the destruction with president obama said some parts of the shore may never look the same again. >> the death toll reached 124 people with 56 in the united states. at least 28 in new york. and close to 5 million customers are still waiting for the power to come back on. >> cnn has the entire disaster zone covered this morning. our correspondents spanned out across lower manhattan and all up and down the jersey shore. >> first, the economic capital of our country is slowly getting back to normal this morning even while facing extreme damage. power outages and people having to walk for hours just to get to work. meantime, another hospital lost generator power in lower manhattan. right now hundreds of people are being pushed out of bellevue after hundreds of others were evacuated yesterday. our dr. sanjay gupta is live at bellevue but first to rob marciano. the governor says there will be no fares for subways, trains and buses but many of the bus and subway lines are still not up and running yet so how limited is transportation now? >> well, i can tell you from
the election this is also being viewed through a political lens. governor chris christie, a romney surrogate, will show the president the destruction, while new york mayor michael bloomberg politely declined a visit. this morning the president got a substantial briefing on what's happening and the federal support that's being provided for the recovery. some are calling this a commander in chief moment. but at the very least, this hurricane has complicated a very close presidential race. take a look at the latest national polls of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an amer

surrogates like chris christie are doing a good job. >> right. as if his plate is not full enough, the president is going to stay in touch with fema. last week, big endorsement from colin powell, now the obama campaign is using the four-star general in an ad airing in ten states. oh -- >> housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry, and the actions he has taken with respect to protecting us -- >> we'll get it together. also the october jobs report expected to come out tomorrow and it is going to do so on time. the government was shut down for a couple of days because of sandy, but unemployment rate should stay around 7.8%. we'll be right back. only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart.
